I've been involved with Postcrossing for awhile now and I'm really enjoying it. I look forward to going to the mailbox every day now to see if there is a surprise from somewhere in our wonderful world :).
I am not too fussy about the kind of card I receive. Original art and your photograph postcards are welcome, I love dogs (I have 4 Tibetan Terriers of my own, they may make it on some of the postcards I send out) and most other animals too, just maybe nothing TOO touristy. I love painters as well and love to see your favourites. In any case I am excited to receive any card you would like to send. Tell me a little bit about yourself, where you live, a favourite quote or saying, even a joke.
I live just outside of Calgary, Alberta with my husband and the dogs (our latest addition, Amra, is now my avatar, she is just 4 months old here). Our two daughters are grown up and have flown the coop.
A VERY long time ago when I was in Brownies (Girl Guides) I collected postcards for my Collectors Badge so here I am, MANY years later, collecting postcards again. Who would have thought.
When I was clearing out my parents house last year I found my old postcard collection, I was very surprised to find that my mother had kept it all these years. It was very heart warming ♥.
I started a personal photography project for 2013 to challenge myself both as a photographer and an individual. It is my take on a 100 Strangers photography project. I have decided to photograph '100 Pets and the People They Love'. They all have to be strangers to me and they won't just be dogs, I hope to capture the relationship between lots of other four legged friends and their people too. Drop by my blog to take a look, things are just getting started :). Say hello if you would like as well.
I look forward to receiving and sending lots of cards.
Cheers and Happy Posting!
